Summary: 
A GaAs power amplifier IC has been developed for 1. 9-GHz digital mobile communication applications, such as the handsets of the Japanese personal handy phone system (PHS), which was assembled into a very small 0. 012-cc surface mount plastic package. This power amplifier using refractory WNx/W self-aligned gate MESFETs with p-pocket layers can operate with high efficiency and low distortion with a single 3-V supply. A very low dissipated current of 119 mA was obtained with an output power of 21. 1 dBm and a low 600-kHz adjacent channel leakage power (ACP) of -63 dBc for π/4-shifted quadrature phase shift keying (QPSK) modulated input.
